Orantes is one of the best players with most injuries, although I cannot recall if he was injuried coming up to RG 75.Zugarelli was a good cc specialist, he even reached the italian Open last match in 77.But, certainly, a straight sets lose with a baggel included is not normal.Orantes won, in 75, not just the USo, he also beat Connors at Indianapolis, Ashe at Boston...and lost the IO finals to Ramirez just a week or so before RG, which makes this early round lose more strange...
